Today’s Nationals lineup

Jayson Werth returns to the lineup tonight after he missed yesterday’s game with a mild groin strain. Werth came out to pinch-hit in the ninth, but never made it out of the on-deck circle. The Nationals will face Wade Miley, the rookie whom the Diamondbacks called up to replace Jason Marquis after he broke his leg in his third start following his trade from the Nationals.
